Keywords: dictatorship under Adolf Hitler, Weimar Republic, democratic parliamentary system, "Provisional Armed Force"


This authoritative, conveniently arranged and particularly detailed military historical publication, stems in the first place from the question which continues to attract the attention of German historians, namely how it could possibly happen that during the period of the Weimar Republic, the democratic parliamentary system could evolve into that of an absolute dictatorship under Adolf Hitler.
